Post news Report content RSS feed HOTD Mod, Will it survive or become a half dead corpse

This news post will be about if people think that this mod will succeed or become a half dead corpse. Please comment and tell me what you think.

Posted by on

Ok I ended the poll up on taleworlds forum and also decided to do a news post about if people think that this mod will succeed or become a half dead corpse. I added this to the mod and anime fans of moddb so they can know what's up, they may not like myself posting it there but I just have to let people know and there aren't many anime mods currently in development so anime/manga fans should take notice and show their support.

I ran a poll on taleworlds forum about when do people think that the mod will be finished at it's current speed and I wasn't happy with the biggest result, just see for yourself what I mean.

Taleworlds forum poll results
When do think this mod will be finished at the current speed

Sometime this year

Hard to tell at the moment
29 (21.5%)
Never
45 (33.3%)

Total Members Voted: 135

The winner was never so 33.3% or a third of people think that this mod will never be complete or see the light of day, thanks that was an awesome show of support from those on taleworlds forum.

I am making good progress but with just myself working on it the mod will take very long to complete but I will get there eventually. Recently I have been working on the gas station scene and it has been going well, just check out these images or the video and see for yourself. Does it really look like im gonna quit working on this.

So why would people think that the mod will never be finished, is it that people don't think I can do it, is it that people don't like me or is it that people think that it's not possible since I'll have to do cities and streets.

Im really disappointed that people haven't helped me out yet with the mod, I mean it really saddens me that I'll have to do this alone. Look, see the sad expression of my face that's because of you or the internet in general.

I will finish this mod eventually though so in the meantime you can show your support for me by subscribing to my youtube channel, twitter, tracking the mod or by even just comenting to show your support so please help me out a little here.

Here is my youtube channel
Twitter (I don't use this much though as you can probably tell)
Track the mod

Any of these would be useful so please go ahead, even spread the word that this mod exists to anywhere on the web. Using a baby and saying it' me isn't really good as I know someone's gonna say your acting like a baby but I have to say this. I know this isn't the best mod and im not the best modder but still this is something I just want to do so support me on this ok.

Now don't get me wrong i love HOTD as an anime and a mod and i support you but i believe you picked a wrong game to mod.

It just doesn't feel like you can bring the full potential of HOTD into this game. And that is not your fault, it's the engine that is ****** for this kind of "modern theme" mod.

Well it was just that im familar with mount and blade and if I did this mod for any other game I would have to make animations, face models and alot more but I can't do any of that.

Example if I did it for half life 2, textures would have to be a bazillion times better and I haven't even played half-life 2 or any game on the source engine.

People has said about mount and blade maybe not best suited before and I understand where your coming from.

I know what you mean with sticking to just modding m&b does seem much easier, hope you don't half kill the mod because I would like to see this happen
also not a member of taleworld's forum but I would have to vote for the early next year

Don't let it get you down, people on Taleworlds are really skeptical about mods. I'd love to see this finished, and I do think you're making pretty good progress, faster than a lot of other modders I know.

Yea I know I shouldn't let this happen but sometimes I get kinda annoyed. It's always good to know that people think im making good progress with the mod, I kinda think sometimes that im working kinda slow but thanks to all you guys here on moddb and taleworlds forum for your support.

Really you thought you were making slow progress hey for just yourself (for the most part) you are moving ahead pretty well (hell of a lot faster than me I just finally got basic texture mapping down)

Yea that's what I thought since look how long it has been but not much has been done. I really only got geared up around january as not much was done before that.

I find uv mapping or texture mapping kinda hard to do mostly as when I do a building I have to manually match up the sides of it to make sure it looks proper when the texture is placed on.

Yea it was kind a hard for me to get used to doing all this and that was only a few months ago. I can do the buildings I already have done much faster now as I really didn't know what I was doing before.

Starting to learn can be a real pain but you eventually get the hang of it.

I do not have the original, only Warband but I will be getting the original to play this mod when it is out. I have been modding and making games and know of the hard commitment, time and amount of work that goes into it and the fact that you keep the community updated regularly shows that this mod will have more luck being completed than others as you are doing it to a high standard with regular improvements and are not keeping us in the dark. So ignore the few as if everyone was on the forums and saw the survey and did it you might find most likely that MOST people will support this mod and are happy with its speed of progression

Thanks for your post, it was good to hear that. I know that im not the best modder but I just like to share what I have been doing and I also don't like it when other mods don't do that as if they only want to show off when the time is right.

If I had M&B I'd definitely play this when it is released. I'm a big fan of anything anime-based and there is not enough of that. I hope that this project not only finishes, but becomes very successful.

That's what I really wanted to hear and thanks for saying that, yea it's a bummer that there is not much anime based mods and that makes us anime fans very annoyed since whatever we like isn't spread into mods or games.

I want to have another scene totally complete before I make another release, that would be the subway so after that's done there will be new release which will probably be months off from now.
